I totally forgot about this post...

I've had her on Dark as Knight for at least 3 months now and she is STILL bleaching... not as fast or as bad but its still there. Im having my barn owner keep a fly sheet on her any time she's out.. but that's annoying cause of how expensive it gets..

Mom2pride... can you explain more about the copper?? Is there a supplement??? Cause Nova does have low red blood cells sometimes and I may end up putting her back on red cell idk if that has any copper in it or anything?

Here is my black horse BEFORE (in July in TX):

And here he is early Sept (about 6 weeks) AFTER:

I used NU-IMAGE supplement. They also make NU-IMAGE Dark Horse. You can find it at most tack shops or local feed stores.
Or online

I heard paprika is great for black horses, but you need to stop giving it about a month before showing since it shows up positive in drug tests.

I use solid paprika. Two tablespoons a day.

BAK has paprika as the leading ingridient, but the other stuff is just a filler and lessens the effectiveness of it.

My bay gelding is, in mid summer, a beautiful rich dark bay, and the sun doesnt fade him to almost a buckskin anymore. Just take him off of it a few weeks before a show. Its best to start feeding it during winter, for it to be fully effective.

Neither paprika or BAK worked for me and I started it super early and feed about 2-4oz of it. I just use a fly sheet with uv protection. My horse still fades !
